January Musings | Personal | Maryland Wedding Photographer

We have almost made it through January my friends. As much as I LOVE December, January really is more of a recharging time for me. A time to reflect on the upcoming season and decide where to focus my efforts. And February simply allows me to continue this so that by the time April rolls around and things start coming to life again, I’ve already cemented two main thoughts I want to stay with me through this year, ensuring that I start this wedding season with a mentally happy head.

So what have I been up to? Well for one thing, I have concluded what my word (or rather words) for the year is going to be. I have a hard time being still… I am a “whirling dervish” as my mother so lovingly calls me. My brain is off in 15 different directions all at the same time, I whip through my tasks, and check of that checklist within an hour, moving quickly to the next one, I could probably go slower on the roads, and I always have to have something going. This could be a TV show that I’ve binge watched for the 5th time and just have it on so it’s not quiet, or it could be playing mindless games on my phone for hours or scrolling social media for the umpteenth thousandth time looking at the same posts over and over again. Really anything that stimulates my main senses of hearing and seeing. One would think that this boredom stems from a need to DO something, but I’ve found that it’s quite the opposite! I need to sit in silence and Not Busy myself with distractions. How in the world am I supposed to hear the still quiet voice if I constantly have noise going on around me? I can’t complain about how I can’t hear him if I’m not even trying. So the two words that I will be constantly repeating to myself when I feel a need to rush about or distract myself are

Be Still.

Those are are my thoughts. Tell me yours in the comments below! Or just leave me a musing of your own.

    Sometimes I daydream of a place I would rather be, especially when I find myself bored. My place
    of choice is back when I was a kid, growing up in Italy and was surrounded by my large family. My parents were alive and life was much simpler. With 8 of us plus mom and dad there was a lot of noice, a lot of laughter and a lot of joy. Simpler times I would like to be in when I’m daydreaming in my bored times.
